Nepal Leadership Trek 2017
Program Time: June 1st to July 4th, 2017 (35 days)
Nepal Leadership Trek is designed for young professionals, and undergraduate and graduate students looking to sharpen their leadership skills while fulfilling their thirst for an adventurous and thrilling journey in the Himalayas. The trek introduces students to the fundamentals of adaptive leadership and redefines widely practiced concept of a leader while providing them time and resources for self-awareness and discovery. The Trek features NLA’s flagship graduate level equivalent course, Leading Innovation, a result of 18-month research conducted by NLA Coach and Former Harvard Senior Fellow Dr. Pukar Malla with distinguished professors Marshall Ganz and Ronald Heifetz at Harvard Center for Public Leadership. The course assimilates NLA’s learning about adult development and social innovation gained from training 200+ changemakers in civil society, business, bureaucracy and politics in Nepal and abroad. The trek is designed around three themes of Rebuilding and Resilience, Cultural Exploration, and Rural Enterprise Innovation.
The three themes focus on enabling participants to connect with different cultures and communities, to empathize with the adversities in earthquake-affected areas, and to provide technical and adaptive analysis and solutions to challenges faced by rural entrepreneurs. The itinerary covers major world cultural heritage sites in Kathmandu Valley, Pokhara Valley, and Lumbini (the birthplace of Lord Buddha), one of the best-rated trekking routes in the world in Annapurna mountain range, and one of the most well-preserved wilderness of Chitwan National Park. The trek will traverse from 500 meters to 3300 meters altitude from the sea.
Health: Nepal Leadership Trek involves trekking and community activities. We will be walking between 4-5 hours most of the days. The highest altitude traveled is at 3300 meters. Altitude sickness is not an important factor but you should be prepared for some amount of physical activity.
Inclusive: Leadership course tuition fee, meals and lodging, trek and travel within Nepal, and city excursions.
Exclusive: Airfare (about $1,100-$1500), visa fee, personal expenses, travel and medical insurance.
